Bump.  I really like this original, then it was used in the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World w/ the actress Brie Larsen singing the lead vocals (I think it's still the rest of the band Metric playing, although in the movie there is a fictitious band).  Now I've stumbled onto a third version of it from a singer I just discovered.

I hear these covers at the gym, 90's pop/alt rock songs done in the style of big, belching, deep, guttural male vocals with hard driving guitars. almost a nu metal sound. A very angry and intimidating sound. I think the powerlifters make special requests for this kind of music to be played during their biggest sets.

Ring of fire. Carter's original is still the best. Cash is ok.

This was a few years ago.  hockeygrin.gif   Spent my freshman year of college at Univ. of Puget Sound in Tacoma.  There was a jukebox in the dining all.  Every damn day at least once, and usually twice or more, somebody played the Cash version of Ring of Fire.  Every damn day!  To say we all got sick of that song would be a ginormous understatement.

Wow, just heard this on KCSN. I believe this falls into "better than or equal to the real thing!"  Obviously, olderthanIusedtobe would be familiar with it.  wink.gif

I hadn't heard it before, but I like it.  They definitely made the song their own.

Rhiannon Giddens has played Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Boston Pops, The Grand Ol' Opry, Austin City Limits, etc. and is currently on a world tour. She was named Folksinger of the year by BBC and won a Grammy as lead singer for the Carolina Chocolate Drops. She can sing phenomenally in Bluegrass, Blues, Country, Pop, Celtic and many other cultural music forms.

Here she covers Patsy Cline's She's Got You with a voice even better than Patsy Cline. Probably the best voice on the planet.

She's Got You

GetOut&Go - I like that Gibson Bros. cover you put up.  They look old enough to have been around for awhile, but I've never heard of them.

There are lots of inexplicable gaps in my knowledge of pop music, too.  I was so ignorant of Pink Floyd's music prior to their Wish You Were Here album that when I heard this cover of "Brain Damage" by the Austin Lounge Lizards, I thought it was an original. I was so surprised when I subsequently heard PF's version.  embarassedlaugh.gif I saw the Lizards perform in Ballard decades ago, in a concert space below an Italian restaurant on Market St whose name I can no longer recall.  They put on a great show.

Ah, Contour5, here's a cover, more true to the original by the late, great Leon Redbone (RIP May 2019):


KEZX in its mid-80's format used to play his stuff on occasion.
